Abstract

As modern Early Childhood Development begins to gain prominence in African communities, questions are beginning to emerge as to what sort of Early Childhood Development is being promoted as ‘best practices’. Thus, the discourse for and against western Early Childhood Development as opposed to indigenous Early Childhood Development and scope of each in a culturally contaminated African society continues to rage on. This paper highlights some of the issues and provides insights into what African Early Childhood Development researcher can do to lead the way in owning, redefining and rebuilding a more culturally relevant Early Childhood Development in the African context.
